The prosecutors agreed to dismiss her marijuana possession sentence and reduced a charge of driving without a license as a part of the plea deal.

The 22-year-old star was not present for the proceedings in a Beverly Hills court. Her lawyer entered her no contest plea, the functional equivalent of pleading guilty in California, on her behalf.

In addition to her probation, she was ordered to complete a three-month alcohol education program and was fined about $2,000.

Mischa Barton was previously arrested from December 27, who was best known for her role as Marissa Cooper on Fox network’s “The O.C.”

The police already said that they separated between two lines of traffic and failed to signal a turn while driving in West Hollywood, a community in the Los Angeles area.

They spent about seven hours in jail before being released on $10,000 bond after they appeared the following month on a Los Angeles radio talk show, saying, “100 percent responsible for my actions in this case.”
